Can windows 10 scan content in the Firefox browser?

Posted

I understand that Win 10 can scan content on a computer. I assumed that this was on the Edge browser. It got me thinking that maybe Win 10 can scan content on all browsers. Does anyone know for sure, (as opposed to guessing or ruminating,) about this? TIA

Sorry I didn't make it clear. I was asking in the sense of privacy. Does Win 10 scan through the Firefox browser content, such as searches and what I am viewing the way that Google does with email. I know it does this on Edge. I'm hoping it doesn't do the same thing on Firefox. Thanks
